Phew … all finished!!!

First of all … THANK YOU all SO SO much for all the lovely anniversary wishes – Mr JP was also really chuffed – you’re all GAWJUS :o)!!!!!!

Well, I was going to say “what a weekend it’s been” … but I think “what a month it’s been” is more appropriate LOL!! I’ve just had a fabulous weekend at the show … met LOADS of lovely quilters and even some bloggers too …

Hi Aunty Henny!!

Hi Julie!!

Hi Betsylynne!!

And although I didn’t get a lot of time to chat with these gawjus ladies it sure was lovely to meet them!!! Thanks so much for popping in :o)!!!!

The past month getting everything ready has been so hectic but it all came off like a dream …. it was great fun!! I had my stand next to Nikki Tervo and all her gawjus buttons and patterns (yummm) … and she was telling me she’s going to get a blog going too – so look out for that!!!! This pic was taken before we opened on Sunday morning, with the stall holders wandering around and having a chat … if you look really carefully you can *just* see Nikki waaaay up the back there he he. And in the front of the pic, that’s Margaret from Bayside Stitchcraft [[my local PW store and one of my very favourite places to visit ;o)]] she was one of the wonderful ladies who helped to organise this terrific event.September 2010 138 Now that all the show excitement is over, I have another thing to be preparing for … in just a few more days ….. {{well, 5 sleeps to be exact, but who’s counting he he he???!!}} we’ll be packing these….September 2010 150for our big trip away!! Can you guess which one is mine LOL??? I can’t believe that in just 6 sleeps I’ll be hugging my gawjus DD1 again … it’s been tooooo long!!!

London, Paris, Nice … here we come – WOOHOO!!!!!

Don’t worry, I’m taking my trusty laptop so I’ll be able to keep in touch with you all – and keep up with what you’re all doing too ;o).

How many sleeps for you now Cheryl?????

I had to have a little giggle Joy - Is that the only case you are taking??????? I know how you can shop girl and that is not going to be anywhere near enough room for you. Hugs - Fee XX

So exciting.... have you got luggage tags? If not let me know quick quick (with your address) and I'll put some in the post - helps finding yours amongst all the other cases (not that yours will be too hard!) I am always amazed that other people also have the same luggage as me!!

Only 6 sleeps for you now... I'm guessing that's 5 sleeps today...
I have 47 sleeps and my suitcase is boring black. Might have to make some bright pink luggage tags!
How funny, you'll be leaving Nice just as I arrive :) Would've been 'nice' to meet up for a chattee... ha ha ha

Glad the show was a success! Your trip sounds wonderful. You'll have to do like me and pack an empty bag inside of each suitcase. I always shop way too much and need extra bags. Have lots of fun, karen
